I colored my hair today

I had a coupon for a free at-home color kit, so I finally bought the color today.  This is my second time coloring my hair on my own.  The first time I colored my hair the color really didn’t turn out, or maybe I wasn’t using the right shade.  Also, I think it may be a little difficult to lighten my black hair to a “golden brown” color.

This second time around, I didn’t see a difference after rinsing and conditioning my hair, nor did I see a difference in color after blow drying my hair.  After a few hours, I am slowly seeing a little bit of a difference.  They look a little like highlights and my hair now looks less black!  LOL 

I am really envious of my son’s hair color.  He is half Asian (me) and half Caucasian (my husband), so his hair is a beautiful medium brown color!  I love his hair color.  There are times I can’t even stop looking at and touching his hair.  I can’t describe it, but his hair color is very similar to Kate Gosselin’s kids hair color.

Regardless of the outcome (I am still holding out that it will slowly lighten a little), I had fun with this experience.  I hope to color my hair again, but only if I have a coupon! 

What about you, do you color your hair at home or get it done at a salon?  What colors do you like to color your hair?

  3. Oh Stephanie, you are still young. lol, wait a few years and if your anything like me you will be coloring your hair every six weeks. I have dark brown hair but after years of being a blonde, red head, and dark brown with hilights, I have brought myself to stick with the medium golden brown. I have my free hair coloring coupon also.I always do my own coloring. I used to have it done in salons but I figured I could save myself hundreds of dollars by doing it myself. same with having my nails done.Have a great day and I hope you enjoy your new color.Cathy
